Ionic and Organometallic-Catalyzed Organosilane Reductions

Paperback
Ionic and Organometallic-Catalyzed Organosilane Reductions provides an up-to-date, comprehensive review of reductions with organosilanes. Both ionic and catalyst-mediated reaction types are included, with appropriate reference to reaction mechanisms where they have been elucidated. The text also provides a wide variety of organic functional group reductions by organosilicon hydrides, and includes a substantial discussion of asymmetric reductions. All known examples have been compiled in thirty-four easily scanned, comprehensive tables compiled from 809 original articles. This is a must-have reference book for all synthetic organic chemists working in academic and industrial laboratories.
